O God, in the priest Blessed Cyprian Michael

you joined the apostolic zeal of a pastor

to the way of life of a monk.

Grant us by his intercession that, persevering in prayer,

we may seek untiringly the coming of your kingdom.

We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

 

Here, at the web site for Mount Saint Bernard Abbey, you can read more about Blessed Cyprian Michael.

MEMORIAL OF ANTHONY, ABBOT

Take your faith into the desert

Anthony headed out into the desert around the year 270 and spent the rest of his long life there. He soon attracted a following, and the desert monasticism movement was underway, which later influenced the entire monastic movement in the church. The next time you visit a monastic community or walk through an abbey somewhere, reflect on how it all began with someone taking the first step into the unknown wilderness in faith. Are you ready to step out in faith in your own life? Who knows where it might lead you?

To trust God one needs to risk.

January 15: Maur and Placid

Lord our God,

you have filled us with wonder

by the example of monastic observance

in the lives of blessed Maur and Placid.

As we follow in their footsteps

may we come to share in their reward.

We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
